What I have been up to

Hey everyone,

There has been quite a bit of a gap since my last post on here. I have been busy working on something that I thought to make after running into an issue with twitter.

For those that use it will know that twitter has a schedule feature where you can schedule to tweet out a tweet. BUT that scheduler never had the ability to make it recurring (at least not one I could find). Now while my solution may not be as elegant in looks, it is still quite functional.

I have been working on a Java application with the integration of Twitter4j library to create a program capable of sending out tweets in bulk.

Why design this?

To simply save me time. When my list of tweets was small, it was bearable to copy and paste them all in. Or even schedule them every week. But now that the list has expanded, it is clear that individually scheduling them every week or copying and pasting them every time is not going to be efficient.

The program is quite simple in design, but powerful in its main focus of bulk tweeting. Once I have ironed out the more finer details of the program, I may release some screenshots and maybe a written demo on here for any curious programmers out there. Maybe this is something then you could make yourself as well.

Don’t know yet if this is something I will actually be able to release to the world since I will have to look at any potential legal ramifications. But hey, if I release a written demo here, it will be a starting point for any other programmer to make their own bulk tweeting software :).
